Excellent light and processing. With the 15mm lens, there's some keystoning, especially in the upper part and I find that it actually improves the shot. It gives a magical look to the houses.
I love it, well done!

Liked the image very much. The wind must have been blowing. The rocks are in focus but the yellow flowers are not.

wonderful. The key stoning is a minor nit pick, does it improve the image if it is removed?

Larry, you are too kind, thank you very much :)

About the keystoning, I couldn't remove it in post because it would mess with my composition (the little wave-breaker on the right hand side would be cut out of the picture, and to me it is already a bit too close to the image's side as it is... Actually, while in an ideal world the house would be straight and I could leave a little more breathing room on the right hand side, as we all know there are physical constraints on location that often we cannot fix. Here, I had to almost turn into a contortionist in order to frame it with the foreground as it is  :o and I couldn't avoid to have to point the camera upwards causing keystoning, and despite using a 15mm I could only get so much space on the right if I wanted to include a bit of the left as I did... compromises, often this is all we can do, and actually I am not too disturbed by the keystoning: it's a price I gladly pay to be able to compose this way with the foreground as it is :D

Best,
